The Faculty of Music, University of Oxford, proposes to appoint two
postdoctoral researchers for a period of 4 years, starting 1st September
2016, to work on a new ERC Advanced grant, Music and Late Medieval European
Court Cultures (MALMECC).

The project seeks to develop a new, post-national and trans-disciplinary
method of studying pre-modern cultures; specifically, the focus will be on
European courts of the ‘long’ fourteenth century, defined as 1250-1450. The
project will consist of systematic collaboration of a team of scholars
drawn from relevant disciplines (including but not limited to history, art
history, architectural history, modern and classical languages, music)
under the leadership of the Principal Investigator (PI), Karl Kügle.

Reporting to the project’s PI, the post-doctoral researchers will pursue an
individual research project within their specific selected sub-project, in
collaboration with the project team. They will be expected to collaborate
with all members of the team and participate in the preparation of relevant
research publications, as well as representing the project at internal and
external meetings, contributing ideas and engaging in dissemination.

Applications are welcome from candidates with a PhD or equivalent and
research experience in a relevant discipline for the period 1250-1450. In
addition, ability and willingness to collaborate across the disciplines of
musicology and medieval studies will be essential, along with high level
competencies in at least one other relevant languages.

Candidates may apply for any one of the following subprojects:

(1) the effects of gender and lineage on patronage in northwestern Europe;

(2) the courts of ecclesiastic princes in France and southern Europe;

(3) the artistic patronage of the Luxembourgs in Germany and the Czech

(4) the politics of prince-bishop Pilgrim II of Salzburg and the songs of
the ‘Monk of Salzburg’.

apply are available here:

Deadline for application: Wednesday 6 July 2016
